COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ondineke is a classic tripel, brewed in the ancient way, again with exclusive natural ingredients: artesian water, malt (barley), hops, yeast and liquid candy sugar. As in the Saison no spices are added. Ondineke is an unfiltered top fermenting beer. It is soft, creamy, and of golden color. It is double hopped with the last real hops available from the region of Aalst (The variety is Hallertau Mittelfrüh). Ondineke has a positive taste evolution and the bottles are best kept standing in a cool, dark place. It is best before two years after the bottling date. 8.5 % alc.vol. makes this a beer to be savoured. Preferably Ondineke is to be served at a temperature between 6 to 10° C. Moreover Ondineke is at its best when served in the originally designed Glazen Toren glass.

ABUSEDGOAT (2554) - California, USA - SEP 11, 2007
Into the RR winetype glass. Hazy orange, moderate head with good lace and retention. Aroma is sugar, pepper, yeast, some light spicing and hopping. Medium bodied, fairly dry finish. Not really my style for a trip, but still pretty enjoyable.

Pours a hazy peachy blonde color with a thin white head. Aroma of cheese, doughy yeast and citrus. Good flavor of cheese, doughy yeast and citrus. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and expansive carbonation. Like other De Glazen Toren products I’ve had, this is a solid and enjoyable beer.

Proteus (98) - FINLAND - AUG 28, 2007
Almost clear golden in color with a small head. If you look at the beer it’s not that tempting but don’t let it fool you. The aroma is very sweet and malty. Has typical Belgian ale sweet alchohol flavor. Great balance with hops, malt and yeast in the taste.

fiulijn (18577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 22, 2007
Cloudy amber color; nice and big creamy head. Classic Belgian Ale aroma: malt, yeast, some vegetables too. Good body strength, good (dry) malt flavor, sweet for a Tripel, well balanced by the spiceness and bitterness; later there is also a light touch of sweet liquorice. More vegetables character and a light astringency appear when more sediment flows to the glass. Very good.

georgekappus (296) - Brookfield, Connecticut, USA - AUG 18, 2007
Bottle. This light gold colored beer had an aroma of grapefruit and honey. A lightly carbonated mouthfeel and a honey flavor. There was also a slight alcohol taste even though it was only 8.5%. This beer got better as it warmed because otherwise it reminded me of ginger ale.

Palidor19 (3145) - Brandon, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2007
This is the third beer I had from Klienbrouwerij and I can tell that the same type of yeast has been used for their beer. This beer has a acidic flavor of fruits and sweet malts. Still the alcohol is hidden very well. This is for the hard Belgian drinker.

nick76 (4370) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2007
The aroma is yeasty, fruity, and malty. The appearance is hazy gold with a nice head. The flavor is like the aroma and a little sour and bitter. The palate is average. Overall it’s not that great.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2007
Bottle. Pours a brilliant pale golden with a very large long lasting white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of citrus, pear, yeast, floral hops, and sweet malt. Taste is citrusy, yeasty, light sweet malt, and spicy hops. Medium mouthfeel with a soft but well balanced bitterness. A wonderfull Tripel.

Open this one over the sink!! I lost the top quarter of the bottle to foaming. Luckily I decided to open this ahead of time so I continued to enjoy what was in my glass as this science experiment spewed beer out of the top for about 5 minutes. I assumed I was not going to be able to pour this (because of the CO2 level) be it cooperated nicely into the glass. The first thing that got me is that it smelled like yogurt. So that it why it is a gusher. Contamination by a lactic culture. This ruined it for me. It translated to the palate as well and it became an expensive drain pour.
